Another State Governor Approves N100,000 Christmas Bonus For Civil Servants
GISTSMATE MEDIA reports that Governor Francis Nwifuru on Thursday announced the approval of N100,000 Christmas bonus for civil servants in Ebonyi State.
Nwifuru made this known while addressing stakeholders and elders of the state during the flag-off of the pet project of the wife of the President, Oluremi Tinubu, which took place at the ecumenical centre in Abakaliki.
The governor emphasized that the resources of the state belongs to the people and as a result, they won’t be allowed to continue to suffer in poverty.
He said, “I have decided to take a good step, it is hard but we must do it. The workers of this state must live like others in this Christmas period. In this season you need to bless your neighbor, you need to be a blessing to your home.
“And as a leader of the state, it is necessary to be a blessing in the homes of everyone in this state. I cannot say that I’m doing this because it is not my personal money, it is the money of the state that I am using, which I was elected to manage.
“And I have resolved with the caucus and principal officers of government, since I came in, that workers in Ebonyi State should have something to celebrate.
“I’m going to have meeting with local government chairmen, and every worker in this state must get N100,000 as Christmas gift, including a bag of rice.”
Recall that Governor Siminialaye Fubara of Rivers State was the first to approved such amount for civil servants in this festive season.
